"It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
(One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me!"
Sheb Wooley, 1958
I created this treat box today... the song lyrics repeating in my head
over and over. I cut the nut cup from Tags, Bags, Boxes
and More (at 6", the largest it could go to fit on my 12" X 12" cutting mat).

The purple monster is from Mini Monsters, it started out as a three
horned monster, but to go with the song, I HAD to alter him. :) He's
cut at 3" - I only used scraps for all the monster parts.

This yellow and orange striped paper is from a .97 cents Studio G
paper pack. I backed it with some yellow card stock. I just knew that it would 
need the extra support. I used Sticky Strip to hold it all together and added 
some foam tape to attach the monster parts.

I hand cut this little tag and used a Inkadinkado stamp from last year. 
I attached it to the orange ribbon handle with a simple brad.

Here is my monster's tail. This has got to be my favorite monster from 
the Mini Monsters cart. I think this is like the third time I've cut him.

Some black stitches finish off the treat container. I used a black Glaze pen make by Sakura (Gelly Roll). Add some candy and you are good to go! :)
